New MMDA Job Post: Taga-Gulat ng Umiihi

Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA)

A promising career awaits you at the MMDA,
Matapat Marangal Disiplinado Ako!

Public Urination Officers

National Capital Reg–Guadalupe, Makati City

The MMDA has been dedicated to cleaning up the streets, which includes discouraging the unsanitary practice of public urination. We have created pink urinals in order to dissuade men from bathing the Manila walls with their personal tinkles.

Despite this new system, many are still peeing on walls, trees, shrubs, etc. As a logical extension of the pink urinals system, the MMDA has decided to appoint public urination officers who will shout out and poke out the violators of the law.

The MMDA recognizes that in order to create an egalitarian society, we must take a tougher stance against public urination. There is a wide gender-based discrepancy when it comes to the violators of the anti-public urination law. Most of these violators are men who can easily unzip and whiz upon any wall. Women usually give up public urination at an early age of 6 to 8 years old, but men do not let age get in the way of peeing in public.

The MMDA must put a stop to this, and if you believe that you are the perfect candidate for this job, you are welcome to send your application.
